The philosophy of Alter’ rests on two axes, one ecological and the other participative one

An Eco-location ?

At Alter’hostel, we aim to do the maximum to reduce our ecological impact:

  • Environmentally dry toilets
  • Collection of rain water
  • Bike rental
  • Secure bike storage if you bring your own
  • Cargo bike rental
  • Kayak rental
  • Communal compost heap
  • Ecological awareness events
  • Sign posts to inform customers
  • Carbon footprint calculation

Working together ?

Everyone and anyone can take part in the activities suggested by ‘l’Auberge Participative’, the association hosted by l’Alter’hostel and driven by two civil servants. Possible activities could include:

  • being a part of the hostel’s radio station,
  • performing on our open stage,
  • helping distribute food to the homeless (resto du Coeur)…
  • selling tickets in the ticket office when, our neighbours, Acte2 perform,
  • or working behind the bar during one of the famous festivals in Lyon, welcoming artists, or preparing meals for volunteers, the choice is endless!
